Cover it up: Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer and Pro Filt’r Foundation

You guys should know by now that I love Fenty Beauty so much that whenever they launch a new product, I just need to get my hands on it.

Adding to their Pro Filt’r family, the Instant Retouch Concealer (C$32) is a creamy, long-wear, crease-proof liquid concealer that applies lightweight with medium-to-full coverage.  This concealer is designed to brighten under-eyes and conceal blemishes and redness.

Just like the foundation, Fenty came out with a ton of different colour options to suit any skin tone. There are a whopping 50 shades to choose from so it may be hard narrowing it down to a colour that suits your complexion.  I went with three shades based off her shade finder online, 120 (fair skin with neutral undertones), 170 (light skin with cool undertones) and 340 (tan skin with cool undertones *AKA for when I spray tan). I found that since I’m so pale right now, 120 did the trick, especially paired with her foundation, which I received in 180.

I’ve been using this concealer for a week now and like how it makes my skin look and feel.  You apply it via the doe-foot applicator, which is my favourite method for concealers since I find you can really get a good grasp on where you want to put the product. It dries down matte and find it doesn’t move once it sets, which is what I look for when trying out new concealers.


If you are looking for something a little more heavy-duty then I would look into this product since it is on the thicker side (which I love though). I’m a first-time use of the Pro Filt’r Foundation and found that the consistency in the two products were different.  With the foundation, a little goes a long way since it is a thinner product.  With that being said though, it is a medium-to-full coverage foundation, which is usually what I gravitate towards.

I’ve wanted to try the Fenty foundation for years now (basically ever since it came out), and I was so pumped to get my hands on it when I got the concealers. The Fenty Beauty Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (C$42) also comes in 50 shades and is a lightweight foundation that gives skin a flawless finish (seriously, like no pores, no shine, just nice skin).  The formula is oil free and made with climate-adaptive technology, making it resistant to sweat and humidity.

I got the shade 180 (light skin with warm undertones) and found that it matched me nicely (although perhaps a shade too dark, but I still make it work). I was very surprised by the texture of this foundation since it’s not thick like the concealer (although, with that being said, the concealer isn’t even that thick, I just find the two to be different consistencies, as they should really).  One small pump of this foundation is enough to cover my face, leaving me with the perfect coverage.  I really like foundation and think it’s worth the hype. I did hear ahead of time that it tends to oxidize on the skin, which I found that it did, but maybe if you are worried about that happening then to go a shade up.

Overall, I love both of these products, although I totally knew I would since I’m obsessed with anything that Fenty Beauty produces.  She also came out with some brushes and a setting powder, so that’s definitely next on my hit list.
